A man will spend 45 days behind bars after pleading guilty to assaulting a streetcar driver. Salah Hussein, 56, was accused of spitting in the face of a Queen St. TTC operator and verbally assaulting him after the driver refused to give the man a free ride on Jan. 28.

Hussein was kicked off the vehicle and arrested by police nearby.


The suspect pleaded guilty to a single charge of assault on Thursday. He was sentenced to 45 days in jail and 18 months probation.

According to the TTC, an average of two TTC employees are assaulted each day.
